McCartney To Webcast Cavern Club Show; Pink Floyd's Gilmour On Board

If you weren't lucky enough to have scored one of the 200 tickets to Paul McCartney's performance at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, England, you can still catch the special "homecoming" show online.

The December 14 concert will mark the first time that McCartney has played the legendary Liverpool nightspot since 1963. It was while at the Cavern Club that The Beatles first came to the attention of their late manager and confidante, Brian Epstein.

The gig will be Webcast live via the Microsoft Network at www.msn.co.uk, beginning at 3:00 p.m. (ET). McCartney plans to roll out material featured on his newest album, "Run Devil Run," as well as other songs from the likes of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and Little Richard.

Also scheduled to join McCartney for the Cavern Club show is Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, who played on several tracks on "Run Devil Run."

"This is going to be a thrilling and emotional night

for me," McCartney said in a statement heralding the event, "and it's fantastic that fans from around the world can log-on to the gig and party with us."

McCartney first played the Cavern Club back in 1958 as part of The Quarrymen, a precursory group to The Beatles that also included both John Lennon and George Harrison. The original Cavern Club was destroyed in 1973, and was rebuilt some ten years later.
